Sale drinking water is safe

Sale and Wurruk customers can be reassured that the drinking water is safe.

Gippsland Water increased its testing regime to include PFOS and PFAS following issues at the East Sale RAAF base in 2015.

Our testing confirms that drinking water is safe and all levels are within health based guidelines.

Monitoring will be ongoing.
